The subject of the workshop is the design and implementation of functional prototypes of objects that have use-value for life in nature, with the use of discarded raw materials: spent wooden pallets as basic and waste collected in the vicinity of Zornica house as additional material. The aim is to overcome the limitations imposed by the use of available materials used and to use all their attributes to make objects that can be used in the external environment.
